Spatial Analysis Lab
The Spatial Analysis Lab (SAL) was funded in 1999 and opened in January 2000. We have 21 workstations with an ESRI site license (Arcview 3.3 and ArcGIS-Arc/INFO 9.2 ), ERDAS Imagine (9.1) image processing software, IDRISI GIS software, and S-PLUS spatial statistics software. Peripherals include a large format HP 1055 plotter, HP high-res color printer, and high-res Epson color scanner. To network the SAL we have a new Dell Poweredge 2850 server that houses data, monitors the network, and runs backups.
The purpose of the lab is to teach students GIS, remote sensing, and spatial statistics. For a list of courses offered, please see the Department of Geography and Geology web page.
Coastal and Marine Geophysics Laboratory
Research conducted in the Coastal and Marine Geophysics Laboratory (CMGL) at UNCW's Center for Marine Science is global in scope and involves the collection and analysis of a broad range of geophysical data. Major research focus areas include marine tectonics (mid-ocean ridge and subduction zone processes), seabed classification (estuarine and coastal ocean benthic habitats), and geohazards (active faults, submarine landslides and tsunamis, volcanic eruptions).
